  • Climate Dynamicsby Kerry H. Cook

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 65.00

    Climate Dynamics is an advanced undergraduate-level textbook that provides an essential foundation in the physical understanding of the earth's climate system. The book assumes no background in atmospheric or ocean sciences and is appropriate for any science or engineering student who has completed two semesters of calculus and one semester of... more...

  • Ocean Modeling in an Eddying Regimeby Matthew W. Hecht; Hiroyasu Hasumi

    Wiley 2013; US$ 128.00

    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 177. This monograph is the first to survey progress in realistic simulation in a strongly eddying regime made possible by recent increases in computational capability. Its contributors comprise the leading researchers in this important and constantly evolving... more...

  • Ocean Circulationby Andreas Schmittner; John C. H. Chiang; Sidney R. Hemming

    Wiley 2013; US$ 124.00

    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 173. The ocean's meridional overturning circulation (MOC) is a key factor in climate change. The Atlantic MOC, in particular, is believed to play an active role in the regional and global climate variability. It is associated with the recent debate on... more...

  • The Near-Surface Layer of the Oceanby Alexander Soloviev; Roger Lukas

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    The rationale for publishing a second edition of this monograph is that this area of research continues to show remarkable advancement. The new generation of synthetic aperture radar satellites has provided unprecedented spatial resolution of sea surface features. In addition, satellites to measure sea surface salinity have been launched. Computational... more...

  • The Aral Seaby Philip Micklin; Nikolay Aladin; Igor Plotnikov

    Springer 2013; US$ 229.00

    The book is structured into six core parts. The first part sets the scene and explains how the use of Aral basin water resources, primarily used for irrigation, have destroyed the Aral Sea. The team explains how spheres and events interact and the related problems. Part 2 examines the social consequences of the ecological catastrophe and the affect... more...

  • The Mediterranean Seaby Gianluca Eusebi Borzelli; Miroslav Gacic; Piero Lionello; Paola Malanotte-Rizzoli

    Wiley 2014; US$ 129.95

    Surface, intermediate, and deep-water processes and their interaction in time and space drive the major ocean circulation of the Mediterranean Sea. All major forcing mechanisms, such as surface wind forcing, buoyancy fluxes, lateral mass exchange, and deep convection determining the global oceanic circulation are present in this body of water. Deep... more...

  • Holocene Sea-level Scenarios in Bangladeshby Towhida Rashid

    Springer 2014; US$ 54.99

    This Brief deals with the reconstruction of Holocene paleoenvironment in the central part of Bangladesh in relation to relative sea-level (RSL) changes which is 200 km north from the present coastline. Lithofacies characteristics, mangal peat, diatom and paleophysiographical evidences were considered to reconstruct the past position and C-14 ages were... more...

  • The Analysis of Diffuse Triple Junction Zones in Plate Tectonics and the Pirate Model of Western Caribbean Tectonicsby Duncan Keppie

    Springer 2014; US$ 19.99

    Modern researchers in plate tectonics may be concerned with the analysis of distributed deformation across diffuse plate boundaries and triple junction zones. This book extends classic methods of kinematic analysis first developed in the 1960s to the more general scenarios of diffuse deformation zones between plates. The analytic methods presented... more...

  • Ocean of Lifeby Callum Roberts

    Penguin Books Ltd 2012; Not Available

    In this revelatory book, Callum Roberts uses his lifetime's experience working with the oceans to show why they are the most mysterious places on earth, their depths still largely unexplored. In The Ocean of Life we get a panoramic tour beneath the seas: Why do currents circulate the way do? Where exactly do they go? How has the chemistry of the... more...
